Kidnapped, locked up for 15 years and then released for no apparent reason, Oh Dae Su (Choi) is now a neanderthal on the rampage. He wants answers and revenge and he will take them by claw hammer or scissor. Part existential thriller, part Oedipal myth, Park 's second revenge movie is the generic equivalent to an electric current through the gonads. He slices and dices between absurdist comedy, horror and enigmatic philosophy with breathtaking skill. A masterpiece.
